I noticed that I don't fry a lot of things for meals. Not because I'm being purposefully healthy but because it's a mess and I always have a bit of a crisis in making sure none of the grease at clean up goes down the drain. But my husband always says, "Anything is better fried."

Anyway, I had a few sweet potatoes and thought I'd make a mess. Here comes the slicing mandolin - no, I did not get these lovely, thin, uniform slices with my knife skills.

And then the real mess begins... the hot oil... I used vegetable oil because it has a higher temp capability without burning. I didn't know this was the case with oils - I just thought oil was oil. In days past I would have just used my EVOO and thought that fried "whatever" tasted bad. Now I know. And my arteries are wincing at this discovery.

Just a little pinch of salt and I'm slappin' hands so we would have some with our dinner! Mmmmmm!

Roasted veggies are the BEST! Drizzle them with some EVOO and sprinkle with Adobo and roast in a hot oven for awhile. YUM!!! Kinda hot for summer, I know.
